I move the Greens amendment on sheet 8527:

Omit all words after "that", insert:

", further consideration of the bills be postponed until the Senate passes a resolution that it is of the opinion that each of the following conditions has been met:

(a) the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Implementation has been re-negotiated to include improved protections for labour rights and the environment;

(b) the Parliament has legislated a prohibition on including investor-state dispute settlement provisions in future trade agreements; and

(c) Australia has a settled climate and energy policy."

I did foreshadow this in my speech.
